calcaneal apophysitis

What is Calcaneal Apophysitis?

Calcaneal Apophysitis is the technical name for Severs Disease. This is a painful area at the back of the heel bone where the growth plate is. It is common in children and as its a strain of the growth plate, the disorder goes away by about the early teenage years when that growth pate no longer exists.
